According to a study from France, "The use of impulsive acoustic radiation force for strain imaging was investigated. A focused ultrasound transducer was used to apply localized radiation force to a small volume of tissue mimic (100 mm3) for durations of 8 ms."
"A conventional real-time ultrasound imaging probe was used to obtain echo signals. The resulting strains were mapped using ultrasound correlation-based methods. The instantaneous strain immediately following cessation of the radiation force was observed at depth within homogeneous gels and within stiff...
